It was already more than three months but I didn’t know why I was procrastinating for this. Every month, I had promised to go somewhere new in Sydney and I did go to different new places but this was the one I was waiting for long.
Actually, I was planning to go with one of my room mate but, I felt like he was not interested on trek, so this time, I didn’t give any excuses. I went by myself. One of the best part of solo travelling is that I can be with myself. I can talk with myself, I can feel who I am and moreover, I can know myself better.
I took a train to Circular Quay, got into the ferry that took me to Manly where my journey actually begins. Manly to Spit walk is around 10 km and it normally takes 3-4 hours of walk. I was excited though because I really enjoy trekking. It took me 3 hours to complete this foot trail.
Since It was the good Friday, I could see quite large number of hikers. I was really surprised by this and felt like people are being conscious about their health. The foot trail began with the coastal walk. I could see couple enjoying on the beach, someone playing with their pets, someone busy on taking photos,
One of thing that surprised me was I could see parents with their children who were I guess around 7 – 8 years of age are on hiking. This made me to think for a while because I still remember the days of my childhood with my parents where we hardly went for hiking. I was looking at them, the way children were talking with their parents and the way they are having fun. I really missed those moments in my life because I never had those moments. My parents never realized the importance of outing, the importance of togetherness and importance of spending time together.
However, I have realized the importance of having time for togetherness and I have decided that in the coming days, I will be having quality time with my parents. Here are some of the glimpse of Manly to Spit Bridge walk.
